There has be a highly secure interaction between the faculty members and alerts / notifications / messages which are flowing around between stakeholders, have to be strictly moved around, based on the rights defined in the system, for the particular device. Regular optimization of the device also forms a part of the security mechanism, based on the type of device and location.
